Ever have days like these....kids always busting in when you're trying to write...gotta love Summer...ha ha! Now you see why this is all I could manage lately!

No, I couldn’t move the mountain
so I dug my way inside…
Found the darkness what I needed
where from others I could hide.

Just to rest awhile in silence
from the chaos of my life…
Bound in comfort in this haven
far away from all the strife.

For times when life is such a tug of war
with me the in-between…
Until my sanity is waning
for the lack of calm serene.

For a moment when my pen can
paint the page with brilliant prose…
Where the muse can speak in whispers
as my fingers recompose.

Though these moments come unnoticed
no regard for my own will…
When the words become my own
until the soul has had it’s fill.

Yet it isn’t always easy
crawling into mountain side…
Sometimes reality is stronger
muse and I are left denied.

Melissa,
I think this turned out beautiful, and the content perfect! I have been going through the same thing, for some reason it has been harder for me to find the time to write lately. Who ever said it gets easier as the kids get older, was mistaken! lol! Thanks for this one, it is good to know that we are not alone in our feelings.

Hugs,
Maria

No matter the mood ,or attitude, you never fail the rhythm and rhyme of your poetry, it is always glorious, because it was imprinted in you at birth as part of your blueprint! You and Dani;-)!
